Being outside means that when visiting this temple, there is little respite from the relentless sun. It is best therefore visited in the morning, rather than later in the day. A simple image (in comparison to many others), but worth the visit to admire it uniqueness. Almost free of commercialism also.

Very impressive place, hard to get the Budha completely on one photo. The place is not far from shwethalyaung Buddha. Seems not to be a big attraction to tourists, since i as the only one ot visit. Apparently the Buddha is planned to be covered by a shrine building (like shwethalyaung); its foundationts can be seen already.

Within the Bago Ancient Hathawaddy Cultural Heritage Zone and within the ticket, the Shwe Tha Lyaung is said to be the largest reclining Buddha at 180 feet in length and 52 feet in height. Of special interest are the pillows the Buddha's head is resting and the storyboard on the reverse side. There were many families enjoying the area, but... More

Impressive reclining Buddha, so long! The details and the other buddha statue near is worth a bike ride!

If largeness was a criteria, do drop in here! But can be tough on a hot afternoon! Best to give it a miss and head for ShwethaLaung Buddha, a little further off!

Impressive and well restored, i find it one of the most interesting thing to visit in bago. Easy to find, i suggest you to rent a motor bike o ask help to locals, with few dollars you can help them and have a great bago experience

During my 2 week holiday in Yangon from 22/06/16 my close friend named Smith suggested I visit the MYA THA LYAUNG RECLINING BUDDHA. Therefore with my friend Smith we set out for the long drive from Central Yangon to the BAGO area & visited many other close-by attractions before reaching the reclining buddha. You have to pay 10,000.00 Kyats to... More

In Bago, almost at the same place, you have two reclining Buddhas, one inside a hall and this one outside. They are both impressive and by all means worth a visit and for sure a nice view.

It is a nice view and a different one. In bago there are at least two reclined Buddhas. Go see it if you do not mind the crowd and the heat of hot season.

It is as mind-boggling as it is enigmatic.... as art worthy as it is colorful. As open in the open as it is open to sensory interpretation. Colossal. Accessible. Awesome. Yet, calming and serene. Until the shadow of a sneer creeps into your consciousness. Is there the start of the disdainful curling of the upper lip? The belittling downward gaze... More
